Nothing fancy here. Just decent seafood fresh off the nearby boats in Galilee and Jerusalem (not the ones in Israel). Picnic tables on the deck. Second and third generation family business carrying on Jim's legacy. You'll feel like a local.

This place I was told about by the owners of the beach house i rented so decided to try it. Was disappointed to find out there was no bloody marys but the eggs benedict was very good. The breakfast was expensive though.

When the other places that serve alcohol are crowded, come to Jim's Dock,and BYOB, you wont be sorry. This restaurant was highly recommended by the locals and they were right, great food at a great price! We ate on the water, it was busy, not too crazy, and the staff was very attentive. I would definitely go to Jim's again!

Hadn't been here in 20 years! Enjoyed a nice seafood meal with family. Highly recommend the grilled scallop & shrimp salad on arugula! Others enjoyed the fish and chips, onion rings and iced tea. One tip - BYOB - they don't sell alcohol.

What could be nicer than an evening meal right by the docks? The dining is very casual (try plastic) but it doesn't matter- the food is great. One of my favorites!

There is no place better for dining outdoors on a beautiful summer evening. The view is fantastic! I love BYOB places...you don't have to spend a fortune in order to have decent bottle of wine. The food here is consistently good. I always get swordfish and never regret it. The only down side is that it's a bit of a... More

Food is just average off the menu. Watch the specials board for whatever they have just purchased from the local fishing/scallop boats. Ask what's fresh and you will enjoy. Is it a few dollars more than a place without a nice waterfront location -- most probably, but you will enjoy the view. Last time we had the scallops because the... More

We had our puppy with us and couldn't get into some of the other local spots. We happened into Jims' and we weren't disappointed. The food was fresh, the view great and the service good. Sitting under the umbrellas overlooking the boats and bay was the perfect setting for a summer lunch on a hot day.
